Inspirations from the Sea...Shellscape Designs
Written by Betsy A. Eno
Each day the tide rolls in, leaving a bounty of treasures along our sandy, gulf coast shores. Among the sea’s gifts is an abundance of shells in a variety of sizes, shapes, textures, and colors that beckon beachgoers to stop, look, pick up, and ponder the possibilities of what could be created. Here are a few ideas to help get you started.
Create an elegant picture frame by hot gluing shells and starfish onto the front of a frame that depicts the color of the sea. For embellishment, glue pearls inside the scallop shells and around the starfish. Place a picture of your favorite beach outing inside the frame and give it to someone as a present, which is sure to be cherished by the person receiving it.
